Welcome to Geekzone... There's not much we can help with, because of little information provided. You should tell us more about this.


For example how are you connecting? Via a cellular network, wi-fi, Bluetooth? If Bluetooth what kind of device is providing the network access?

And you are trying to access the Internet through a connection sharing on your iMac? If this is the case it won't work. The Mac OS X doesn't provide the support for the type of connection you need.

You basically have 3 options:

1. Get Bluetooth added to your PC - either via pci card, dongle or a BT Router.
2. You could purchase a Wifi SD Card for your Tungsten T2 (though I don't know if they still exist for such an old model)
3. Purchase a newer model that has Wifi built into it.
